Yet another stay at this wonderful hotel and once again a perfect holiday. Fantastic christmas decorations and cracklings fires were a welcome sight after a drive on a freezing cold afternoon. Once again the staff were excellent, working their socks off to ensure a perfect stay for everyone. Food was superb and the room was so warm and comfortable. Peter... More

The residents bar was enhanced by a blazing log fire. Service... More

Stayed in room 17, which is a ground floor room (with a couple of steps) accessed by it's own door on the side of... More

Stunning location. Nice room, looked like it had been recently refurbished. All staff were excellent, particularly Peter behind the bar and Pam who served us breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Well done to Gary and Carol. We will be back. Thanks you.

We stayed in an annexe adjacent to the hotel, which required just a short walk for breakfast, service was quick, plenty of staff, so no waiting for food, I have had better "full English" but I have no complaints. Evening meals were of good quality and were plenty to eat and good value for money. Our room was of a... More

I've stopped at many hotels, very few have felt as warm and welcoming as this. The room was good, food excellent and location perfect, but above all the welcoming staff are what really makes the place special. In an age of look- a-like hotel chains this is a very welcome change: a real traditional hotel. I could not recommend highly... More

Eaten here many times and stopped for a short break. Bar will take dogs but is usually very busy. Staff helpful, great location and the foods always excellent, been back at least once every year for the last four years.
